I’ve been looking at getting one of the Lightburn cameras (the new 8MP ones) but they’re out of stock. I read that one of the reasons the LB team were supplying their own is that the cameras generally came with the default set to the lowest resolution in firmware, and on Windows, the framework that LB uses doesn’t allow them to easily change that.
I’m on a Mac, and I see in the preferences that there’s a preference for “Camera resolution”, so am I right in assuming that any 8MP camera would do ?
If I were to get a camera from Amazon/Ebay, would it matter if it uses a fish-eye lens ? I’m assuming the software would have to be able to figure that out and de-fish-eye the image… Would it be better/required to get a linear imaging setup instead ?
Not really related, but since I’m posing questions Any idea on whether SHX fonts work with Lightburn right now ? Last I saw was back on Aug 6th (which to be fair, wasn’t that long ago …):
“SHX fonts are working for non-unicode fonts, but a bunch of other infrastructure needs to go in to support them - namely integrating them with the font chooser, size normalizing, and setting up the prefs to let you choose where to find them.”
There’s a bunch of free SHX fonts out there, and I’d like to use vector text rather than rasterising it (so s…l…o…w ) if at all possible.
